Welcome to Name that Noise (2014 Edge SEL)

Recommended Posts

Thank you for wanting to play Name that Noise!



Before you listen to the audio recording of the noise, here are your clues:


  • 2014 Ford Edge SEL FWD
  • Only 17,000 miles
  • Only makes the noise when turning left
  • The sharper the turn, the more noise it makes, especially when turning into parking stalls.
  • Noise seems to come from right front
  • Do not feel anything in steering wheel or brakes
  • Only does it while moving forward, not stationary and turning wheel
  • Does not seem to do it in reverse when wheel is cranked over to the left
  • Brakes seem good, are releasing and vehicle does not pull

Ready for the sound? Please click this link to my dropbox. It is a 16 second audio file recorded while making 2 left sharp turns in a parking lot.

Seriously, any thoughts?


I did post this in the suspension section too of course. Got the car from CarMax and have their warranty, but have not been impressed in the past with their work.



I appreciate your time and thoughts.

I'll give it a shot. Sounds like a bad ball joint.

Thank you for the reply. I will have it checked out this week and report what they find so it may help others.

UPDATE: I took it to our local Ford dealers "Quick Lane" today since they work on struts. It is sort of an abbreviated Ford repair shop for basic stuff.

The technician felt it was the passenger side strut bearing and was able to reproduce the noise.

They did not have the part, but it is schedule for the repair at their main shop this coming Thursday.

 

I will again confirm the fix afterwards in hopes it may help others.

Thank you for your input.
